What would Coco say – Chanel Le Coton
They say in a recession that people go back to basics; by making their own clothes, growing their own veg, and cooking everything from scratch. Chanel have also gone back to basics with ‘daily essentials’ Le Coton (cotton wool pads to you and me). Yes for a mere $20 you can have your own posh box of handpicked Egyptian cotton and elastic Australian fiber rectangles that have been ‘developed’ in Japan. They even come embossed with the famous double CC logo lest you forget you are wiping your face with just any cotton pad. According to the Chanel.com website these will treat ‘even the most sensitive skin with unparalleled gentleness’.
I somehow doubt that Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel ever intended her name to be linked to overpriced stickers aka Chanel Tattoos or something that you wipe your face with. Then again she is quoted as saying ‘Nature gives you the face you have at 20. Life shapes the face you have at 30. But at 50 you get the face you deserve.’ Touché Coco touché!
